Google reCAPTCHA

thyssenkrupp Materials Services GmbH uses Google reCAPTCHA. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google reCAPTCHA allows us to verify that any input made on our website (for example, using a contact form) is made by a human, rather than by an automated computer program.

To this end, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of website visitors based on various factors. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor accesses the website. To carry out the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various data (for example, IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in detecting whether our website features (such as the use of a contact form) are being used by a human or machine and in protecting our site from misuse, automated reconnaissance, and spam.

The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google (legal basis: EU-U.S. Privacy Shield).
